Progress, Acceleration & Momentum

01 Running Into 2022

January 2, 2022 • Jordan Gash

Psalm 16:8 NIV - 8 I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken. RUNNING INTO 2022 WITH 5 FOUNDATIONAL TRUTHS No matter what I face in 2022, I know that: MY FATHER ALWAYS LOVES ME 1 John 4:16-19 NKJV - 16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. 17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 19 We love Him because He first loved us. MY FATHER IS ALWAYS FOR ME Romans 8:28-32 NKJV - 28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to [His] purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined [to be] conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. 31 What then shall we say to these things? If God [is] for us, who [can be] against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? MY FATHER IS ALWAYS WITH ME Matthew 28:20 KJV - 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen. Psalm 23:4 NKJV - 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You [are] with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. MY FATHER’S SPIRIT IS ALWAYS WITHIN ME Philippians 2:12-13 AMPC - 12 Therefore, my dear ones, as you have always obeyed [my suggestions], so now, not only [with the enthusiasm you would show] in my presence but much more because I am absent, work out (cultivate, carry out to the goal, and fully complete) your own salvation with reverence and awe and trembling (self-distrust, with serious caution, tenderness of conscience, watchfulness against temptation, timidly shrinking from whatever might offend God and discredit the name of Christ). 13 [Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while [a]effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and [b]delight. Galatians 5:22-23 AMPC - 22 But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, 23 Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge]. WE ARE ALWAYS WELL ABLE TO OVERCOME Numbers 13:30 AMPC - 30 Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once and possess it; we are well able to conquer it. 2 Corinthians 12:10 AMPC - 10 So for the sake of Christ, I am well pleased and take pleasure in infirmities, insults, hardships, persecutions, perplexities and distresses; for when I am weak [[a]in human strength], then am I [truly] strong (able, powerful [b]in divine strength).

02 Unstoppable Momentum

Isaiah 43:15 KJV - I am the Lord, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King. Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Beyond the Power of Man Joshua 1:5-9 NKJV -  No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. Beyond the Power of Your Enemies Deuteronomy 28:7 - The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. Beyond the Power of Evil Psalm 34:19 - Many evils confront the [consistently] righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. Beyond the Power of the World John 16:33 AMPC - In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.] Beyond the Power of Sin Romans 5:20 KJV - Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound. Beyond the Power of the Devil John 10:10 KJV- The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly. Beyond All the Power of Hell Matthew 16:18-19 KJV- I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

03 Beyond Where You've Been

January 9, 2022 • Jordan Gash • 2 Peter 1:3–15

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; 7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. 8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: 11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth. 13 Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance; 14 Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me. 15 Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance. - 2 Peter 1:3-15 KJV
